A Step Away

Simmering and swinging out on a limb
Life all around full to the brim
Swooshing and sliding in it's place
Chatting and joining the rat race
Hurry and scurry and passing us by
With a heave and a hoe and give a sigh
Round and round with audible sound
Our feet barely have time to touch the ground
A look or a glance at the sights
Acknowledge , try to be polite
Stop, be stationary for a while
Take a little step a way and smile
